A panel of vaccine experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised that everyone age six months and older should get flu shots in 2010-2011. The doctors at South Tampa Immediate Care agree that flu vaccination is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza throughout the population.

Some important facts about the flu virus that you may not already know include:

  • The flu becomes contagious even before symptoms develop, so it is possible for people to spread the virus when they don’t know they have it.
  • Flu season usually begins in October and peaks in January, but it can continue into May, which means that without a flu shot you’re susceptible for two-thirds of the year.
  • Young children, pregnant women, senior citizens, and people with asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic medical conditions are especially susceptible to the flu.
  • If you develop the flu and allow it to go untreated, you’re at risk for complications like ear infections, sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia.
